are mischaracterizing the romney plan. saying you're right there is $5 trillion lowering the tax rates but he talks about cutting loopholes. but that is part of the plan. >> but he won't say, chris, which loopholes and which deductions. senator, i doubt seriously you would be if favor of doing away or cutting the home mortgage deduction for middle class americans. governor romney has not said what the plan is for paying for the $5 trillion in tax cuts just like he won't talk about what his tax returns have been or -- >> with all due reis spect, governor, first of all, governor romney made is clear in the debate and he was actually able to speak directly to the american people that he is not going to lower the burdening on up youer income individuals. we know that upper income individuals rely more heavily on deductions and he will give the relief on the middle class and it will be deficit neutral. one of the best lines of the debate was i have five sons and you can tell the story i'm used to hearing the story five times and having me believing it to be true but we know it is not true what they are
and then mitt romney in this primary campaign. we asked brett o'donnell to join us today to talk about this week's debate and how both candidates need to recalibrate for the next one. the big i think it is fare to coming out of this debate is what happened to president obama. why did he do so poorly. obviously you were in the room but best guess what do you think his debate team failed to do to prepare him for wednesday night? >> three areas where you have to prepare a candidate. the first s they have to know the issues and policy on both sides. i think president obama s fine in that area. but the last two areas i think his team may have failed. the second is you have to have a strategy going into the debate to execute. and the final thing is you have to be mentally prepared. i don't think the president was really mentally prepared to take on governor romney and i certainly think that he was in shock when governor romney went on offense and stayed on offense throughout the debate and put the president on his heels and the president's worst moments are when is on defense and that is where he spen
that romney for all of his good points, stumbled, too, during the debate. you say one case is when was talking about reforming social security and medicare, entitlements. let's take a look. >> if you are around 60 or older you don't need to listen any further but for younger people we need to talk about what changes are going to be occurring. >> chris: i was surprised by this. what did he do wrong there? >> i don't necessarily think -- you know, it is degrees of weakness and i think governor romney had a very strong night. section on sec hundred on entitlements he didn't necessarily look the best and seemed to be the moment where he wasn't as sure of himself on the arguments as he was on the rest of the debate. he was very strong on tax policy and economic policy and used that $90 billion figure to a great advantage twice. useused it against the presidet on energy policy and used it against them on education policy. but during the section on he entitlements he didn't necessarily seem to be at his strongest but still certainly much stronger than the president. >> chris: i want to ask you about
at your point. it is kind of odd, if you -- if a person is talking directly to you, like governor romney was, during most of the debate, and, you don't look at them. it is almost -- it is -- could be considered rude or disinterested. irritated and it certainly sent the wrong message and at times, you notice the president is either looking to his left when the podium is canted to the right and, it sends the message, i want to get out of here as soon as possible. >> chris: you said romney through all of his good points stumbled, too and one was when he was talking about reforming social security and medicare, entitlement. let's look. >> 60, around 60 or older you don't need to listen any further but for younger people we need to talk about what changes will be occurring. >> chris: i was surprised by this. what did he do wrong there? >> well, i don't necessarily think -- you know, it is degrees of weakness and i think governor romney had a strong night but in this section, on entitlements, he didn't necessarily look the best, and, it seemed to be the moment where he wasn't as sure of himsel
